CD Traverses The Spectrum Of Popular Music Ranging From The Beatles To Broadway And Everything In-between

Los Angeles, California. “The Heart Of The Matter” the 11th CD from critically-acclaimed Grammy-nominated vocalist Jane Monheit, will be released by Emarcy/Decca Records on April 16th, 2013. An homage to great songwriters and voices from across a variety of musical genres, Monheit has crafted a carefully chosen and eclectic selection of twelve tunes ranging from “Golden Slumbers/The Long And Winding Road” by The Beatles to Buffy St. Marie’s “Until It’s Time For You To Go” to “Depende de Nos” by Ivan Lins; finishing it off with her take on the Sesame Street classic, “Sing,” a song she often sings for her young son Jack. In addition, the “The Heart Of The Matter” contains the first song recorded by Jane on which she has written both the words and the music, “Night Night Stars.” The release of “The Heart Of The Matter” will be accompanied by select tour dates worldwide.

Said Monheit, “This album is really different from my last. I knew it was time for the focus of a project to be lyrical interpretation…over the years, it's become the most important part of my approach to music. The songs were chosen just for that reason…I didn't worry about genre or style…just that each song dealt with a message I wanted to share or story I wanted to tell."

“The Heart Of The Matter” was produced and arranged by noted Producer Gil Goldstein, and recorded this past November at Avatar Studios in New York City. The CD features Jane on lead and background vocals, Michael Kanan on piano, Gil Goldstein on electric piano and accordion, Romero Lubambo on acoustic guitar, Neal Miner on bass, Rick Montalbano on drums, Rogerio Boccato on percussion, David Eggar and Richard Locker on cello, Barry Crawford and Kathleen Nester on alto flute and Sheryl Henze on bass flute and c flute.
